A debut film that opened to remarkable reviews, a Filmfare award and one million followers on Instagram—Alaya F certainly has a lot to show for the little over a year that she’s been in Bollywood.
Instagram offers a closer look into the young actor’s life, and evidently, whatever she does, it’s always with a heavy serving of style. So, if you want a crash course in what’s trending in gen-Z universe, we bring you the biggest style lessons from the star’s feed.
As we continue working from home, loungewear takes precedence over all else. And Alaya F’s feed certainly throws up some bookmark-worthy looks. Clearly, the actor loves a good tee. Through the lockdown we’ve seen everything from crops to grungy to statement tees—mostly paired with her trusty denim shorts. Some other lounge favourites of the actor include oversized shirts (sometimes layered over a vest), tanks and occasionally even a humble kurta set.
After loungewear, it’s activewear that’s proved to be the pandemic’s official uniform—and Alaya F has no dearth of it. A talented dancer and fitness enthusiant, her feed gives us a peek into her rehearsals. In this department, she likes keeping it basic. Steering clear of big logos and bright hues, you’re most likely to see her in a black sports bra worn either with hot shorts or leggings. Sometimes, she adds a signature touch to the ensemble by layering with a knotted tee or an off-shoulder top. Every once in a while, she’s seen opting for an athletic co-ord set like the red set she wore for a push-up challenge on Instagram, recently.
3. Prints please!
One scroll through Alaya F’s Instagram is enough to discover her love for prints. Fittingly, the young actor likes keeping things playful by opting for quirky, popping prints. On Holi, she was seen wishing her followers in a comic-print tank top and shorts. On other occasions, we’ve seen her up her sartorial game with more eye-catching prints—pop art-inspired, geometric, florals and botanicals. Some recent standout looks on her page include a green and pink floral pant suit, a summery tropical print co-ord set and a mixed print shorts set.
When it comes to footwear, Alaya F is partial to the chunky variety. Often enough we’ve seen her give an edgy spin to a demure dress by styling it with boots—like the time she opted for a white dress with a thigh-high slit together with high-heeled boots. Come winter or summer, they’re also always her choice when she’s travelling. A fun behind-the-scenes post even saw her in a tasselled skirt and embellished top with matching thigh-high boots replete with tassels and mirror work.
When it’s time to make a public appearance, the actor loves a bit of drama. For her recent Filmfare win, she was seen in a short, structural pale pink Gaurav Gupta dress. On another occasion, she went with a semi sheer, ruffled Shehla Khan dress with a trail. Whether it’s larger-than-life silhouettes or a generous does of sparkle, Alaya F certainly knows how to leave a lasting impression.
